Environmental Lessons I Learned In Europe

As the United States leaves the Paris Climate Agreement, showing itself to be a true disappointment among many nations, states, environmentalists, and children, the European Union (EU) and China speed up their work on combating climate change. Fortunately, the EU is willing to work with several individual states within the United States on ramping up environmental programs; and thankfully, several states are willing to work with the EU; my state, California, is one of them. Working on climate change is not an option, it is requisite and mandatory. Having just spent three weeks in central and eastern Europe, I learned a LOT about what they are doing to be sustainable, and what WE can do to emulate them. First, here are some of the things I noticed: 1. Cars are more efficient with better fuel economy. 2. Renewable-energy use is normal. 3. Many countries produce very little waste […]

Landmarks and City Halls Across the Globe Go Green in a Show of Support for the Paris Climate Accord

Municipal governments around the world are bathing their city halls and landmarks with green light to show their support for the Paris Agreement on climate action, after President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the U.S. would withdraw from the accord. In France, the 2015 climate accord’s namesake lit up its city hall in a vibrant hue, fresh on the heels of Trump’s announcement. “Regardless of Trump’s decision, cities will apply [the] Paris Agreement,” tweeted Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, in both French and English.

Europe and China Will ‘Forge Ahead’ on Climate Action Without the U.S.

(BRUSSELS) — Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and top officials from the European Union are set to reaffirm their commitment Friday to a landmark climate change agreement, a day after President Donald Trump said he was pulling the U.S. out of the Paris accord. Climate issues are expected to dominate discussions between Li, who is leading a large delegation of ministers to Brussels, and E.U. Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Speaking to European business leaders alongside Li, Juncker said E.U.-China ties are underpinned by “a rules-based international system.” He said that Brussels and Beijing believe in “the full implementation, without nuances, of the Paris climate agreement,” and underlined that there can be “no backsliding” on the pact. At their short summit, the E.U. and China — two of the world’s major polluters — are set to issue a statement reaffirming their stance on global warming following Trump’s announcement Thursday. According to a draft, they will express their determination “to forge ahead with further policies and measures for effective implementation of their respective nationally determined contributions.” They will also “call on all parties to uphold the Paris agreement” and “to strengthen efforts over time, in accordance with the purpose and provisions of the agreement.” Separately on Thursday, European heavyweights France, Germany and Italy said in a joint statement that they regretted the United States’ decision to withdraw from the accord, while affirming their “strongest commitment” to implement its measures. They also encouraged “all our partners to speed up their action to combat climate change.” While Trump said the United States would be willing to rejoin the accord if it could obtain more favorable terms, the three European leaders said the agreement cannot be renegotiated, “since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economics.” Germany’s environment minister underscored that Friday, saying “there will be no new deal with the United States” on climate change. Barbara Hendricks told reporters in Berlin that other countries will fill the leadership vacuum left by the United States but none will be expected to make up the shortfall in emissions reductions caused by Washington’s exit. She added that the global climate would “survive” Trump’s maximum presidential term of eight years. Hendricks noted that the absence of $500 million contributions from the United States to the Green Climate Fund will be felt from 2018, but said it might be possible to fill the gap with “other financing mechanisms, for example through the World Bank.” […]

Two Steps Forward

As the Trump administration lurches from failure to incompetence to disaster and back again, it’s important to keep pointing out that there is progress still happening in this country—it’s just not originating from Congress or the White House. And a lot of the best news continues to be about renewable energy—and I don’t just mean last week’s revelation that the Kentucky Coal Museum has installed 80 solar panels on its roof to lower its electric bill.
